SITUATION The beautiful, ancient and much sought after village of Sherston with its broad High Street and historic stone houses is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty conveniently located on the edge of the Cotswolds. Sherston has a thriving community and offers many facilities, including church, primary school, doctor's surgery, post office & general stores, hairdresser, wine shops and two pubs including the highly regarded 16th century Rattlebone Inn, with its excellent food and friendly atmosphere. The facilities and amenities in Sherston more than adequately provide for everyday need with a whole host of societies and clubs meeting on a regular basis offering entertainment and social events for young and old alike.
Schooling locally is second to none, with very good state and independent schools providing transport to and from the village on a daily basis. Close by are the market towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury which are both approximately 5 miles away. Malmesbury is reputed to be the oldest Borough in the country dating back to the 11th Century. Both towns offer a wider range of shops, services, schooling and leisure facilities. There are main line stations to London-Paddington at Kemble (14 miles) and Chippenham (12 miles) whilst Junctions 17 & 18 of the M4 are both within 15 minutes' drive providing convenient access to Bath, Bristol and Swindon.
